Continuing its nearly 20-year history as a global leader in organic cotton thread manufacturing and distribution, Fiberactive Organics has unveiled Sewpure, the strongest GOTS certified, organic cotton thread in the market in multi-purpose, Tex 40 and heavy-duty, Tex 70. Sewpure is put up on recyclable plastic cones and recycled content cardboard tubes.

Fiberactive Organics bring essential organic cotton sewing products to the world, and Sewpure is the next step in that legacy.

Fiberactive Organics has made it their business to bring essential organic cotton sewing products to the world, and Sewpure is the next step in that legacy.

“Sewpure is specifically designed for customers that have had to turn away from using organic cotton thread because of strength issues,” says founder and company spokesman, Julie Moore. Both weights of Sewpure are 3-ply for durability, and are made of certified organic cotton grown and spun in India. Sewpure Tex 40 is strong enough for sportswear and home decor projects while being thin enough for use in overlock, zig-zag, and domestic sewing machines; the Tex 70 is strong and durable enough for jeans, outerwear, duffle bags other canvas products.

Fiberactive’s natural-coloured Sewpure is completely untreated, “Nothing has been done to the cotton beyond washing,” says Moore, “it’s perfect for manufacturers doing piece dyeing." And for those who are looking for coloured organic thread, Fiberactive will start the Sewpure brand with a short range of earthy hues and will expand the palette on demand. They also have the capability to produce custom colors from Pantone numbers or DTM swatches. Always in support of new designers and eco-entrepreneurs, Fiberactive Organics offers Sewpure at a comfortable price and keeps their minimum order quantities low.

Fiberactive Organics has been on the cutting edge of organic cotton sewing products for many years. In 2007, along with South Carolina’s YLI Corporation, Fiberactive Organics brought to market their first organic cotton thread, Fiberactive Natural, a Tex 30 natural coloured, organic cotton thread spun in Peru. Fiberactive then became the North American distributor of Scanfil, a Tex 35 organic cotton thread spun in the Netherlands and finished in 34 colours. Sewpure, the latest in Fiberactive’s family of organic cotton thread, is more robust than their other brands. “Sewpure fills a huge gap in what we could offer the sewing market.” Moore says.

In order to implement Fiberactive’s core values, to protect the earth and provide good conditions for textile workers and their families, Sewpure is put up on recyclable plastic cones and recycled content cardboard tubes, and is packaged in compostable, vegetable-based plastic. “It’s not enough to make organic cotton thread. If we’re generating plastic trash and greenhouse gasses in order to bring that thread to our customers we’re not doing the whole job. Being sustainable involves every part of every product, and how it’s made, and how it’s shipped.” (SV)
